In fact, those over 65 tend to spent up to 10 hours inactive per day, making this the most sedentary age group. Muscle strengthening, coordination, and endurance are all important aspects that factor in to daily living and can prolong a healthy life and independence. An upcoming exercise that reduces that fear of injury doesn’t actually take place on land, but in water. Due to the buoyancy, the water can carry up to 90 percent of your body weight and allow better circulation which in turn lubricates the joints and provides a cushioning. Those with medical conditions such as arthritis and osteoporosis who face difficulty in getting exercise should consider water aerobics as a solution. Additionally, the benefits double than that on land. Because of the density, the water’s resistance engages the muscles allowing for a more fulfilling work-out.
Remaining active is vital to perform even the simplest tasks such as turning your head to check a blind spot or play with your grandchildren.
